Pink Math

First I made a graph, and then colored directions.  The gray represents the color white.

Then I gave the kids Q-Tips to apply the number of dots.

Then mix to see what color it makes.

She was actually more excited than this picture shows. :)

I left 3 columns blank so they could make up their own pink recipe.

This was very fun, and they learned that a little red goes a long way!

Three Little Pigs


I opted to print it in black and white and color it myself, laminate it and then hot glue it on craft sticks so the kids could act it out. This picture is before I did all of that!

Then we talked about how pigs are dirty and messy and PINK! So we made tissue paper pigs today as the project!  Here is the shape I used, I just cut it and traced it on cardstock!

Then we glued Tissue Paper to it.


Then I mounted it on grass.

I did it this way so I could use it again for Farm Week in a few weeks. I also added a googly eye to this pig, but forgot to take a picture of it after it was added!

Pink Lunch

It was time for a color lunch so A chose PINK!  I am not going to lie...this was a challenge but we did it!

So we had a oh so nutritious lunch consisting of...Strawberry Whoppers, Strawberry yogurt, Pink Grapefruit, Pink Animal Crackers, Pocky and Canadian Bacon.  I supplemented this lunch with sandwiches on the side because there was no real substance to this meal but they had fun tasting everything!

Especially the Grapefruit! YIKES!
We then made a color chart and put the different things in order from light to dark.  This was really fun!

Then we ate some more and called it an afternoon!

Hot and Cold

To close out Winter Week I made up a game.  My son is obsessed with all things fireman and so we decided to play a safety game.

I printed out some signs, that said hot and cold...like so....

I made 8 of each kind just on a word document.  Then we talked about things that are safe and things that are not, then it was time to run through the house and label things that were hot and cold....
Hats are obviously optional! :)





After this we made a chart and tasted chocolate milk and hot chocolate...my daughter didn't like either of them but it was another thing they had to try before they could label it.

Safety is very important, this could be a FHE Lesson if you wanted to do this as an activity.
Try it!

Snowflake Garland

How many of you remember doing this as a kid?  Well today we did it 3 different ways.

You need: Kid Scissors, Paper, Hole Punches and Yarn.

Fold the paper into a square then a triangle, round the shortest end of the triangle with scissors and cut.  My 3 year old was good at this, my 2 year old was better at hole punching.





I forgot to take a picture of the garland, but basically you string them together and make garland with all of the different sized snowflakes.  Pretty Cute!

Penguins

Today we had J over to play with S.  Of course my oldest daughter was so happy to play with J.  Today we made Foot Penguins...Happy Feet! Hahaha.

You need black, white, and orange paint. White paper and a background paper.

Paint the foot like so...


J actually laughed the whole time, and she has a great laugh! S was tooting and laughing that is why she looks so happy in this picture...

Everyone got a turn, my son modeled while getting his turn...

Then you stamp, and this is what they should look like...

Then you let them dry, cut them out and add to your background with snowflakes if you want. Cute right?

Winter Scenes

Here is what you need...

Dark Construction Paper, White Construction Paper, White Paint, Black Marker, Q-Tips (I used the baby ones because the tips are bigger)

Draw an outline of a tree and let the kids put snowballs on the trees and branches to make a scene.

Then cut out circles for a snowman and let them glue them on.  I just added the coal for the mouth and eyes and there it is...

The kids loved this.  It is simple and looks great because of the contrast!  Have fun!
